Nexus 5 back in stock on Google Play in both 16GB or 32GB versions


Nexus 5 back 1

Just when we thought we had seen the last of the Nexus 5 in the Play Store, today the phone has quietly returned with more stock. Only available in black, both the 16GB ( $350) and 32GB ($400) are showing as currently available, with shipments leaving the apartment in 1-2 business days.

Although now a bit on the pricey side, the Nexus 5 still offers some pretty good value for your buck. Aside from coming unlocked with support for both AT&T and T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network, the phone is one of the few on the planet running a stock Android 5.0 Lollipop build direct from Google.

  1. Since when is $350 pricey for a phone?

    1. I’m missing the reference, but one could say it is pricey for last year’s phone, when the g2 and 2013 moto x are going for $200.

      Edit: sorry, I missed that at the beginning of the second paragraph.

      1. Where can you get a Moto X for $200?

        1. Sorry should have said 2013 moto x, but they have those all the time on eBay, new, usually 32GB Dev editions. Then again you can get the new 2014 with that coffee today for 360.

        2. Saw an unlocked AT&T one for sale last week for $200 myself. The LG G2 was $210 last week unlocked 32 GB brad new from qualitycellz.

  2. Damn. And I just got this Sony Z3…

    1. Trade you my Nexus 5 for the Z3.

      1. No offense…. But I like my devices brand new… Thank you for that though.. Sounded enticing at first…

        1. No offense taken!

  3. You neglect to say it fully supports Sprint’s network, though for most they might care less. I’m hoping Google’s Nova MVNO is amazing.

  4. Dude… No…..

    1. Agreed, Lollipop is nice, but it doesn’t run very well on the Nexus 5.

  5. Seems like a Moto X over this is a no brainer at the same price.
